Rails 3 stuff
As some of you may know, this past weekend RailsBridge held it’s 3rd Bugmash event, focusing this time on Rails 3 integration and actual test driving.
Although i didn’t take an active part in this bugmash (oh clients…) i peeked once in a while to see how stuff are going on and it seemed to me, that people are actually having fun. Lots of people worked hard this weekend and i want to thank them all and hopefully join with a more vivid performance on the next bugmash.
